Me And My Kindle Keyboard

Behold your breath, you read the blog of an Amazon Kindle owner. After a long search for an e-book reader and resisting the temptation to go with the flow of iPad. I rounded out my search to the mighty old Amazon’s Kindle Keyboard.

What caught my fancy was the e-ink screen, its the e-ink screen that made me drop the Idea of owing a Kindle Fire too. E-ink gives the reading pleasure of a normal paperback book. Kindle is light and easy to hold, not to mention the easy dictionary lookup. Get the cursor near to the word to be looked up, and voila !!! the details comes up bottom of the screen.

Nice small device with 2 months of reading on single charge. Books are delivered wirelessly and not through a synchronization software (Did you hear that iPad lovers). PDFs or personal documents as they call it can be emailed to the Kindle and later synced over Wifi, in kindle native format.

I got mine shipped from USA (psstt !!! it was assembled in china) took around 2 weeks. It was worth the wait and hard earned money. All in all am glad that I did not go by the flow of “Buy the iPad its the best”, instead trusted my instincts. 

I admit the only thing I do not like about the Kindle Keyboard is the keyboard itself, wish the buttons were rectangle than round.

My search for a e-book reader / Tablet

At first their was only an eBook reader from Amazon. The Kindle, life was easy and I just had to save some money and purchase the damn thing. Then came along the  Kindle Fire , which blew the whole thing up. Now am confused with hell lot of options for Kindle. The dilemma , Shall I put my money on the e-ink technology  (Found in other Kindles, but not Kindle Fire) or buy a colour screen (Kindle Fire) tablet that would  allow me to read content in colour.

I know many of the iPad fanatics by now would be murmuring “Duh !!! don’t you know anything about iPad”.  Being a realist, I pondered upon the facts, I want to read and to me spending 400+ USD on iPad is waste of money. It would be bulkier as compared to even the high-end kindle. Besides it would be better to use a laptop for games, a digital camera for photography and a MP3 player for music.  Instead of  using one device for all. Let them all do what they were made for, a little bit of everything isn’t good.

Back to my dilemma, my research is on going and sooner or later I would come to a conclusion which would result to a dent in my pocket and an e-book reader or a tablet, suitable for my needs.
